Hypnotism made National IQ Test results worse

Filed under: Weird by Orangemaster @ 10:51 am

As a follow up to the story Hypnotised to participate in National IQ Test, here are the results. Surprise! They scored worse than expected. Dark forces at work or sleeping?

First, the candidates took the test yesterday afternoon normally and scored an average of 126. Last night the group took the test again under hypnosis and scored an average of 118.

Amusingly enough, they have nothing to be ashamed of as they had the best score. Dutch celebs had an average score of 114, followed by a group of women football players with a score of 113. The gifted kids group had the worse score, with 104.

I can explain why the kids did worse than expected. So many parents think their children are gifted when they’re not. Ordinary parents are surprised when their kids know more than they do, which happens quite often. It’s all very objective.

Hypnotised to participate in National IQ Test

Filed under: Weird by Orangemaster @ 11:37 am

On 23 January, a group of hypnotised people will participate in the National IQ Test on telly. Before the broadcast, those to be put ‘under the spell’ will do an old test. After that they will be hypnotised by Rasti Rostelli who will tell them that they are very intelligent. Then they will go and and do the new test live in the studio. The hypnotised folks will have to compete against another group, which include real-estate agents and gifted children (interesting combination). A group of Dutch celebs will also participate in this year’s edition.
